This isn't right.

Instead of offering a lengthy, wordy statement, Niigata Bar Association Chairman Tetsuya Taira chose a simple phrase to express his opposition after the Liberal Democratic Party-led coalition rammed the controversial security bills through the Upper House in the early hours of Saturday.

In an official one-page statement, Taira wrote: "Okashii daro, kore," which translates roughly as "This isn’t right," in a large, bold font on a piece of white paper.
